Cosy and cool: How to warm up your living room decor for winter

Trends / June 19,2014

The cooler months encourage us to use our lounge rooms far more than any other season. As the weather turns chillier, the urge to get cosy creeps in along with it. A little planning and some simple DIY can help transform your room (and stave off cabin-fever) over the coming months. Our team have put together a list of decorating tips that will make your living room feel inviting and stylish, even when you just want to stay curled up in your pajamas all weekend.

CRACKING THE COLOUR CODE

Choosing a cohesive colour palette will make your room look pulled together. Warm colours create a cosy ambiance while those on the cool side create a crisp feel. Colour suggestions to keep your room feeling warm in winter draw mainly from the red and yellow side of the wheel. Don't be alarmed! Even if you're not a fan of brights, a subtle tint could really give your room a lift.

 

TACTILE TEXTILES

Soft furnishings are a great way to add texture and warmth to any room. Simple throw rugs, floor mats, cushions and curtains create a super-easy cosy vibe that's totally reversible when seasons change. It's important for big purchases like a lounge that you choose something you'll love all year round. A fabric sofa is a great choice for most homes, choosing clean lines and a contemporary lounge design will make your room a stand-out in every season. Fabric lounges are a great idea for creating a snug environment as the textures of the fabrics will blend in beautifully with a warm colour scheme. Sticking to neutral colours and classic shapes with your furniture lets it work with whatever decorating whim you have.

 

SOFA SO GOOD

The clean lines of our range of fabric lounges will ensure that your choice will remain timeless. Inspired by mid-century modern furniture design, our contemporary fabric lounges are our take on classic retro sofas. Understated charm is what defines our living room furniture, making it a seamless match for over-the-top decorators and minimalists alike. You'll be surprised what a difference a fabric sofa (or even sofa bed) can make to your space, anchoring your style so you can be creative with the smaller things.
